Crystal Palace owner Jordan slams Pogba: All myth

Former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan has attacked Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

Pogba has been slated for his poor United form by Jordan.

“If I'm Ed Woodward and my champion was Mourinho I'd want to do something quite extreme to support him," Jordan told talkSPORT.

“I'd publicly get right behind him and put a stick right up Pogba's backside in terms of straightening him out, so he knew where I stood.

“Frankly whoever wanted to sign Pogba in the first place… I'd send them home in a cab!

“I would sell Pogba in a heartbeat.

“I think he is a malaise and has far too much to say for himself.

“And most of it has no relevance.

“His performances on the pitch are far and away beneath what one expects of a player who is reported to be of the quality he is.

“The World Cup success with France was [N'Golo] Kante, [Antoine] Griezmann and [Kylian] Mbappe excelling in their individual roles.

“I think there was a lot of noise and rubbish coming from Pogba inside the dressing room – I think he's all myth."
